Snoozing near the airport

We are working on increasing accommodation near the airport terminal, with the first new offering about to open.

New Zealand's first JUCY Snooze is a 240-bed pod hostel, behind Spitfire Square. If you've driven down Peter Leeming Drive lately, you'll have seen the distinctive bright green and purple building.

JUCY Snooze will open on October 6, with advance bookings already stacking up. The pod hostel will offer express check-in via smartphone, 24 hour reception, guest kitchen facilities, free WIFI, travel advice and bookings service and luggage storage in case you want to go exploring without your largest suitcase or backpack.

You and your mates can have inter-connecting rooms, or you might want an ensuite room with your own smart TV, but either way, you're sure to be attracted to the funky communal spaces. We can't say any more just now, but make sure you check them out!
